City of Meriens – a conceptual design for a floating oceanographic university conceived by Jacques Rougerie Architecture.

900m long, 500m wide and based on the anatomy of a Manta Ray, the floating ‘city’ will have hydroponic greehouses, bays for marine and submersible craft, accomodation for up to 7000 people, lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, sports zones, living space and ‘cultural relaxation areas’.
